    • [Brøderbund WFT Vol. 2, Ed. 1, Tree #1859, Date of Import: Dec 20, 2000]
      1857
      "In my notes I have an entry, 'In 1857 Jesse bought two coffins and cases for a child on October 8 and November 10 from an E. Kimbro.' These coffins were for his young daughters, Mary Frances and Martha Jane, who die within two months of one another."
      An entry was added as a footnote to the statement above: "Unfortunately, I lost the source of this note and have been unable to find it again."
      Kimbro-Field: A Family History of the Kimbro and Field Families of Middle Tennessee by Kenneth Kimbro, 1992, p. 65.
      __________
      1860
      In a letter to Edythe Rucker Whitley, Marshall Field stated that "Jesse had moved to Hickman County around 1860-61."
      Also, he is listed in the1860 Census of Hickman County, Tennessee, 9th District, MF Roll #1257 (Census Page 96, Dwelling 289, Family 289). The family and their ages are listed as: Jesse (45), Rebecca (35), Wm. J. (13), Susan (11), Thomas (8), George W.(7), and Jesse A. (1).
      __________
      1994
      In the Spring of 1994, Lucille Kimbro, Barbara Norman, and Kenneth Kimbro visited the old Jess Field Home place in Hickman County, Tennessee. We met and were shown around by the current owner (unfortunately, I have forgotten his name). The new owner has reassembled the original Field Farm, all 1700 acres. He told us that during the War Between the States, Jesse was burned out by the Yankees. He showed us the cabin where the family lived until they
      could rebuild (I ran out of film and don't have a picture).
      It was an interesting and enlightening trip, although we didn't get to go inside the Field house.
